Liverpool eye transfer swoop for want-away Real Madrid star to solve urgent Jurgen Klopp problem

Posted by

Liverpool fans would be delighted to see this go through.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is reportedly ready to take the necessary step to fix one of the biggest weaknesses of his squad by entering the transfer market for a big name.

This is according to Diario Gol, who claim the Reds boss is looking into a move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, whose future at the Bernabeu is in doubt.

The Costa Rica international is said to have instructed his agent to listen to any offers to leave Real, and Liverpool seem ready to pounce after their problems between the sticks this season.

Recent stats from footynumb3rs showed that Liverpool’s current number one Simon Mignolet has the worst save percentage in the whole Premier League – very worrying numbers indeed.

It would be little surprise if Klopp were to do all in his power to replace the struggling Belgian, and there’s plenty to suggest that Navas could be an ideal candidate.

If the 30-year-old is indeed available, he’d add plenty of quality and experience to this Liverpool side, who are so badly in need of improvement at the back after a sloppy start to the season.

The Reds currently have the worst defensive record in the top six, letting in 16 in their first ten matches – four times as many as rivals Manchester United.

Keylor Navas

While one player would not solve all their problems, Navas would surely be a considerable upgrade on Mignolet, who along with Dejan Lovren has to be considered one of the biggest weak links in this leaky Liverpool back line at the moment.
